I hate the Yankees.

I will say it again.

I HATE THE YANKEES.

I am a passionate sports fan. My father had no sons; he had me and my sister. When I was just an infant, he gave me a soccer ball. I grew up at his knee watching the Masters, Wimbledon, the ’86 World Series (young and naive, I cheered for…the Mets *SOB*).

Baseball has always been my sport of choice. At 6, I went to my first Angels game. They were the team of choice for me until 1994, when the player’s strike turned me off of America’s pasttime for about 8 years.

I came back in 2002, after moving to Maine. There, I fell in love with the greatest team on Earth: The Boston Red Sox.

Yes, I love the Boston Red Sox. I loved them when they were loveable losers. I love them now that Jason Varitek is 37 going on 64, and Big Papi is aching. Whenever a player leaves on their own volition or parts in a bad way, they become “dead to me.” If they go to the dreaded Yankees, they basically no longer exist.

Tonight, I was overjoyed to see the Yankees, who have built a brand new stadium that Ruth most certainly did NOT build, lose to the Cleveland Indians in spectacular fashion. Final score? 25-7.

This is the team that in the off-season dumped MILLIONS on C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixiera… only to become L.O.S.E.R.S.

Anyway, yeah, it is only April. Still, though, I am so happy tonight. I bet that the new stadium was built on a direct passageway to hell. Ha ha ha ha. Guess that Ortiz jersey that some construction worker buried in the cement DID have an effect after all!

Another great thing? The Yankees are having trouble selling seats at this gargantuan new stadium, despite making tickets available online. I guess sometimes new media doesn’t help if you A) Stink and B) Have too much supply!
